Details

Before England get knocked out I thought it'd be good to get hacking on some World Cup related data.

I've made a start on it in this graph gist (http://gist.neo4j.org/?6e24a3bb09766e62b0b1). Included in there is a CSV file hosted on dropbox (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/7619809/matches.csv) which has the details of all matches in World Cups from 1930 to 2010.

We'll build on top of that by bringing in data from other sources and coming up with new and innovative queries. I've got match data at the moment but the intention is to bring in all the player data too.

You will need to bring your laptop and optionally have Neo4j installed (http://www.neo4j.org/download). We'll probably do some work locally but deploy it as a graph gist so others can build on top of it afterwards.

Pre Requisites

You'll get the most from the session if you've done a bit of Cypher before. Having said that if you're football mad it's not very hard to pick up so come along anyway and we'll get you familiar with it by the end of the evening.

I'll order pizza (or similar) to keep us going!

6.00 - 6.30: Refreshments, networking and getting Neo4j installed.
